Successfully blending the elegance of its period era with modern appeal, this beautiful single-fronted brick Victorian home offers a welcomed escape from the daily grind within an easy walk of High St shops and cafes, Preston Market, Preston train station, the No.86 tram and only 10 Km from Melbourne CBD.

Timeless features including a breathtaking hallway with a classic corbelled arch, two period fireplaces, polished timber floorboards and soaring high ceilings with ornate cornices complement the modern style infused throughout the spacious single-level floorplan, which incorporates two separate living areas (kitchen/dining area plus central lounge with an open fireplace and split-system heating/cooling), sizeable bedrooms (one with a fireplace) and a large renovated family bathroom that makes a statement of style with its fabulous frameless walk-in shower, wide vanity and matte black finishes.

The home's intelligent connection with nature is evident in its integration via large bi-fold doors opening to undercover deck entertaining area and low maintenance yard (with rear lane access), in addition to the extensive use of timber throughout the trendy kitchen, which features original brickwork that provides a glimpse into the homes period soul.

An excellent home for the professional couple with an eye on the future, young family, investors, and empty nesters looking to downsize their home whilst upgrading their lifestyle and convenience.

Own a piece of local history! This envious and significant Victorian Hawthorn brick house was constructed c.1892 as an investment property for John Sullivan, a farmer on land that formed part of the Heart of Preston estate, which was one of the largest estates in Preston during the land boom of the late 1890s. Upkept, modernised and cared for by subsequent owners delivering a quality heritage home.
